course, you will get the best modelling results when working in a daylight
environment. But most of the time it will be rather murky in your hobby studio
because of its architecture, the late hour or the dull weather outside. And who
already had to realise that an apparently perfect evening paintwork can cause
terrible pain in the morning sun would definitely wish to hang up their own
little sun - including some cirrostratus clouds below the ceiling...
As a realistic alternative, trade and industry offer fluorescent lamps which emit light quite similar to real daylight. They are available in different shapes and sizes; we prefer collapsible lamps with a colour temperature about 5400 K.
